The Last Frontier – HUGE Property Close to Town
This property is quite the find! 160 hectares (395 acres) with extensive flat riverfront areas and tons of flat spots in the mountains. From the riverfront to the mountaintop, you can build in so many different areas! It’s rare to find such a huge property like this so close to town, which is why we endearingly refer to it as the last frontier of Vilcabamba.
In addition to having access to the crystalline Capamaco river descending from the Podocarpus National Park mountains, this property has a charming waterfall found near the entrance of the property. Because this property is in the heart of nature, its atmosphere boasts tranquility, privacy, and peace everywhere you turn.
At the upper parts of the property you will encounter rolling hills and mountainous areas with quite a bit of flat and semi-flat land! In this area the views are incredible and can be enjoyed from nearly every spot! You can even see all Vilcabamba below!
Another one-of-a-kind fact about this property is that there have even been discoveries of ancient ruins here. How amazing would it be to do your own archaeological digs to find new artifacts!
This property has quite a bit of diversity with the elevation ranging from 1700 meters (5570 ft) in the valley to about 2400 meters (7875 ft) up the mountain.
There is already road access and it is just a 15-minute drive to town, so it is close enough for running quick errands, yet out in the peaceful countryside.
